My Latest TED Talk Could, (But Won’t) Teach Trump a Thing or Two

Well, it’s only taken me about two months to post my new(ish) TED talk. I gave it last spring but it was re-edited and re-introduced this fall. It’s called The Road to Empathy and it addresses ableism and racism through mini-scenes performed by four actors, (including myself). It’s a mash-up of my play My Son, and Driving Miss Daisy. I used excerpts from the latter with Alfred Uhry’s permission.

I’d been too distracted by the upcoming mid-terms to post, but now I’m motivated considering the latest xenophobic, racist rants from our distinguished Commander in Chief. He could take a lesson from the talk, but as we all know empathy and compassion aren’t his strong suits. Thank you for watching, and please don’t forget to vote.

    I just watched and didn’t know I was crying until a tear dropped into my lap….so moving, so appropriate for today. Thank you so much for sharing this.

      Thank you for your kind words! I believe I’m still stuck in the Hope and Change mode. Fingers crossed.
